September's Second Wave of Games Include Grounded, Deathloop, SpiderHeck, Valheim, and Hardspace: Shipbreaker

Richard Walker

September's second wave of Xbox Game Pass titles are upon us, following the month's previous batch of additions, with this latest lot including today's arrival of Deathloop and zero-g salvaging game Hardspace: Shipbreaker. Even more games are on the way for the second half of the month, too, while a dozen games are also set to leave soon.

Give our Deathloop review a read here and get it downloaded sharpish, then, during the following week, you can look forward to swinging around as lightsaber-wielding arachnids in SpiderHeck, corralling adorable little blobs in Slime Rancher 2, and engaging in a cute but creepy storybook adventure in Beacon Pines.

From 27th September, 2D soulslike platformer Moonscars then heads to Game Pass, alongside the full 1.0 release of Obsidian's survival adventure Grounded. Two days later, cutesy management sim Let's Build A Zoo will be joining the library, as will Norse myth survival game Valheim, in an early access preview state for PC.

Paw Patrol Grand Prix rounds out the month from 30th September, the same day that you'll have to wave goodbye to a dozen titles, including Astria Ascending, Lemnis Gate, DiRT Rally, Unsighted, and the original Slime Rancher. The good news is that nine more games have touch controls, and there are new XGP Ultimate perks to take advantage of.

Check out the latest Xbox Game Pass update below.

  • Nothing interesting then which is just as well. Helps work on that backlog until Plague Tale and Scorn come out.
  • I'll take a look at DeathLoop. Not sure much else interests me.
  • Deathloop is actually really good.
  • Deathloop is great, but I beat it long ago on PS5;-)
